The origins of italian Packaging

In 1949 Antonio Martelli, in a small workshop in via della Salita, just outside porta san Vitale in Bologna, produced that first automatic machine to manufacture wallets, it was used to cut and weld plastic for those products. That machine was sold to REGIS and right after that the production of dosing and modelling machines for chocolates and washing powder started. CAM started designing and producing the first italian cartoning machines, and the main innovation was the carton opening blade, designed and patented by Antonio Martelli. It was a simple double blade mechanism installed on hinges, which, once inserted inside the flat carton, opened it and put it in volume. At the beginning of the fifties CAM started expanding. In 1966 Guglielmo, Antonio’s son, took on his fathers’ job and started the construction of a new facility in Rastignano, which today is still in use. Through the years the machine range has also expanded so that complete packaging lines for all industrial sectors can be offered, among which are the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and food ones. Today the CAM brand is a well-known group and it consists of 14 manufacturing companies, 19 sales offices, with sales agents in 27 countries, 15 service points, able to provide technical support in any country of the world. This year CAM turns 73 and, in order to celebrate the territory where it was born and where the headquarters are located, took part is the creation of “PIANORO Vecchio e Nuovo” the new book by Roberto Vitali which tells the story of this integration of past and present.

CAM takes art to exhibitions already since a long time…The first times were at the live corporate events, during which clients, artists and visitors used to leave their mark. Step by step it became clear that such a bond, unusual for this sector, could give much more than that. “WE asked Asako (https://it.asakohishiki.art/) to give an artistic interpretation of our production…We found her concept of transparency…” very interesting, says Donata Martelli, CEO at TecniCAM. This ever stronger bond with Art, which CAM has taken for the first time out of the usual venues in an apparently different sector, offers the opportunity to give an open interpretation  and simultaneously creates a new meaning, renovates besides keeping its roots, just like what happens in our company.   With time, Asako will offer her view thus making us understand that Art, like machine design at CAM, are not distant, and that they are rather linked by intuition, vision, emotion.

With RB, a new eco-sustainable packaging

One of the issues that has a very special place for CAM is eco-sustainability, a real mission for us. Our care and production efficacy allowed us to carry out a very important project. Today we introduce an important feature of the RB machine, the result of years of experience and research in the field of product wrapping. A concrete action against pollution and climate changes.     Precedente Successivo We have in fact developed a particular wrapping type for a dairy product (chocolate) both in plastic material and compostable.  The RB is able to process a 100% compostable material in recyclability class A. What does recyclability class A mean? With 1kg of material it is possible to obtain 1kg of carton! It is actually bio-polymeric plastic with thermo-welding and compostable characteristics.     Precedente Successivo     Precedente Successivo Besides that, the RB machine works with a particular setting of the heating system, so that even if a non-recyclable material is used, such as a NON-GREEN thermo-welding poly-propylene, a minor impact on the environment is guaranteed.

CAM use the utmost flexibility in their cartoning machines offering new solutions in a continuously evolving market accepting a challenge by IGB, an italian cartons manufacturer for the pharmaceutical sector. Usually PMM machines can process cartons with thickness up to 0,5 mm only, but together with IGB we have made it possible to work with a thickness by 1,2 mm. Such a format and this special thickness have been certified as CHILD RESISTANT, since thanks to the special design and tuck in closing type, they make it impossible to open the cartons without a special key. That key is located directly on the pack and it’s detachable, besides that, it is clearly visible thanks to its colour which contrasts with the background and for the presence of a mark “KEY”. In order to open the box, it is sufficient to fold the key, as indicated above, and insert into the slot marked as “FLAP”. It has been officially presented in may at the INTERPHEX exhibition in New York City at the stand of IGB, which has registered the patent for this “special” carton design.

Evolving to improve!

pin up The climate crisis requires changes that are made also in the field of packaging, and most of our customers will have to deal with such changes in the next decades. Studies are ongoing about sustainable packaging types that will make our machines evolve all around the world. In the passage to a circular economy, the eco-design of the packaging is being promoted. A sustainable packaging will have to be conceived so that it minimizes its impact on the environment. Semplification of the packaging, use of ricycled and ricyclable materials, such as food waste or even biosolubile…These are among the many aspects that will force us to combine sustainibility and production necessities. CAM faces these changes through a continuous research of the necessary solutions to the needs of a sustainable market.         Follow us on  Facebook , Instagram, Linkedin

Slp, the cutting die for CAM blister machines with positive logic rejection

pin-up The new cutting unit born in Partena S.p.a. (CAM), leader in the construction and design of blister and thermoforming machines, releases only good blisters on the outfeed belt. A careful study and design made it possible to guarantee high quality product, easy and quick format change-over, operational safety and new logic of the reject system.   Product quality The precision and centering of the cut are guaranteed by a smart automatic system, equipped with sensors that reads the position of the cavities. The quality and flatness of the blister are guaranteed even in the event of machine stop. In this way, the blisters that remain in the yielding rollers are not deformed.   Easy and quick format change-over Partena has designed and developed the new cutting unit by limiting the format parts. Formats with the same cutting die, for example, share the same trailing group and for standard-sized blister packs the outfeed belt has an adjustable position which adapts without the need to build and replace format parts. Simplicity and repeatability of the format change are guaranteed by settings on the operator panel and by graduated systems. The safety of the rejection is ensured by a special barrier sensor that does not need programming by the user.     Safety of correct operation The electronics used the continuous control of absorption and torque increases, for example due to excessive wear. The reporting of these anomalies ensures that the mechanics of the machine are preserved. The movements of the cutting unit are also completely independent from the rotation of the main shaft. SLP automatically corrects its speed and allows phase stops before the machine stops, by limiting the number of blisters released on the belt at each stop.   The new logic of the reject system The system, known as SHIFT REGISTER, has information about the product after the check and is managed by the PLC rather than by the vision system. This therefore allows an interface with a greater number of vision system suppliers.             Follow us on  Facebook , Instagram, Linkedin

CAM, Record-breaking prototypes!

pin up     CAM is able to manufacture prototypes in record short times!Partena, the CAM factory specialized in thermoforming machines, requires to receive a sample of product or even only a drawing, in order to design the tray first, and then the mould and the punch for the thermoforming and the welding.     After the projectc stage, the mould and the punch are manufactured by use of a 3D printer, with reduced cost and time waste compared to standard metal versions. Partena is now ready to prepare its samples with a film identical to the one in use at the customer facility. Furthermore, Partena is able to adapt the design of the tray in agreement with the customer as well as its nests, and all this is done with a minimal waste of time and money. The 3D printing process is also used to produce the welding tools for the film covering the tray, with the aim of obtaining a tray sample similar to the real one produced by the Partena blistering machine. The last missing components of the packaging kit are the carton prototypes and the shipping cases, which are designed and manufactured by Tecnicam, CAM company devoted to the managment of special projects. The samples developed allow the symulation of the packaging months ahead of the installation of the line, allowing any change of design at the early stages of the project. This is a very important service for CAM, which supports the customer in the reduction of the time-to-market of new products and allows them to market the products months before their real production. Also, Partena offers the customer the possibility to install a machine at their facility in order to produce small bathces of pre-series products, totally similar to those which are going to be manufactured in standard production, and thus ensures that all pre-production test are carried out and all permits received, Follow us on  Facebook , Instagram, Linkedin
